They said because another guy came from New York and bought two today.
I am thinking of buying more and move them on ebay.
I was thinking of doing something with ebay as well, that is if I can ever get just one for myself in central Iowa.
But along with my thinking I did some math:
$599.99 + 6% sales tax = $635.99 out the door at Coscto
Average selling price on ebay this month = $746.27 (shipping included)
$746.27 - 9% ebay fees = $679.11
- 3% paypal fees = $656.72
That leaves $20.73 to cover your shipping costs, handling, time, etc.
Where's the profit, and the point in moving them on ebay right now?
Now if you can get the sales price up into the $800 range or more, maybe then it's a different story.
